    What are some cool projects to self hosted on a home Raspberry Pi (64 bit) Kubernetes cluster (Helm charts). arm64 support is a must. A lot of projects only build amd64 Docker containers which don't run on my cluster.

    I currently run:

       - obenebs (provides abstraction for using local k8s worker disks as PVC mounts when running on-prem) --

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • metallb

    A network load-balancer implementation for Kubernetes using standard routing protocols

    - metalLB (provides load balancer abstraction when running k8s on-prem) --
